Hi,

This is my first post. Please excuse my poor English and lack of knowledge about Linux. I have a simple question that maybe someone in this forum might help me resolve:
I´m working with Puppy Multisession 1.0.7 and would like to mount my hard drive´s Windows partition (hdc1) from the command line.
This is what I have done:

# cd /mnt
# mkdir hdc1
# mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1
mount: Mounting /dev/hdc1 on /mnt/hdc1 failed: Invalid argument

As you can see in the last line appears ¨failed: Invalid argument¨

Any ideas on how to do this?

Thank you,

maybe

# mkdir /mnt/hdc1
# mount -t vfat /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1

or

# mkdir /mnt/hdc1
# mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1

are you sure hdc is not your cd drive?
what does typing probepart tell you about hdc?

(your English is not poor)

Thank you so much for your fast and response.
The second option worked.

# mkdir /mnt/hdc1
# mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1

Now I know a little bit more about Puppy Linux, which by the way is by far the best OS ever developed, even for people like me with limited knowledge about computers.
